Hermanson strong in Giants debut
By Frederick Krift /

CINCINNATI -- With an exhausted bullpen and facing a possible three-game sweep against the Reds, the Giants knew they needed an solid outing from starting pitcher Dustin Hermanson on Sunday, but they didn't know what to expect.
After all, he was making his debut with the Giants, called up from Triple-A Fresno on Saturday. Even more, before he signed a minor league contract with the Giants on July 11, he was a reliever with the Cardinals, who released him after 23 appearances and a 1-2 record.

Hermanson had made only one start in the Major Leagues since 2001 after his 2002 season was peppered with injuries.

But with intended starter Damian Moss traded to the Orioles in a four-player deal for Sidney Ponson, Hermanson became a necessity on the mound.

Hermanson turned the Giants' need into a triumphant return to the bigs and a Major League starting rotation as San Francisco beat the Reds, 7-3, before 35,840 at Great American Ball Park.

Hermanson (2-2) pitched six innings, scattering four hits and allowing two runs while striking out four. After walking Juan Castro in the second inning, he retired eight batters in a row. He held the Reds scoreless through the first four innings before experiencing any threat.

Rest of Story

Nice to see Dustin get a good start under him...Hope he gets back from his injuries and pitches well the rest of the way... ;-D
